One thing i think is missing in BLM v. ALM,
ALM recognizes, yes we all individually struggle, 
with our circumstances, bad family life, personal demons...
But what ALM misses, and what BLM tries to address, but not particularly well,
is that on top of the personal conflicts, 
black lives, minority lives...
also deal with the broader prejudice, bias...of society that weighs on them;
the inequality of our social norms, which still need to be recalibrated. 

 
 
I actually feel the same way about ALM as I do the BLM organization.   I obviously support both of the notions black lives matter and all lives matter, but they are both being used for political agendas.  ALM is used to insult and aggravate the aggressive BLM organization, trust me those who use the term all lives matter know exactly what they are doing and you are not telling them anything they do not already know.  BLM is an insidious organization whose real goal is the dissolution of capitalism and the traditional family unit.  Do black and all lives matter?  Of course they do, but if you feel the need to chant these slogans then you ain't gonna make with it me anyhow.{#Snooty}

New York Legalizes Recreational Marijuana, Tying Move to Racial Equity
Under the law, 40 percent of tax revenue from cannabis will be steered to minority communities that had disproportionate numbers of marijuana arrests.

Yes, Anti-China invective in Foreign Policy puts a Target on Asian-Americans’ Backs
The earliest Asia-bashing in the West was China-bashing, and history shows it was periodically deployed to defend the privileged classes in Europe.

When Mississippi Once Cancelled Banned “Sesame Street”
The show ran into problems during its first season in 1970 when a small group of Mississippi television consultants found it too controversial. The reason? Black cast members.
(...) Sesame Street would go on to win numerous awards and accolades over the proceeding 50 years, though it would not be the only children’s show to experience censorship on public television. In May 2019, ETV networks in Alabama and Arkansas refused to air an episode of the PBS animated series Arthur in which a rat and aardvark are depicted as a same-sex couple getting married.

I have a lot of experience with Asians in all capacities.  I roomed with a Phillipino in college and worked for many years for Koreans at a health club in the 90s as well as having various Asian friends over the years.   We are all the same, we are all different.  One thing that we all share to a certain extent is at the very least a recognition of all groups cultural differences and at the very worst out and out prejudice towards them.  Asians themselves can be extremely prejudicial not just to us wide eyed stupid Americans as the Koreans would half jokingly call us all the time whilst pointing out the various strange eccentricities of white people,

but strangely the real vitriol is reserved for other Asians which I found surprising.  

I had no problem with it for the most part because most of it was absolutely true and was presented in more of a jest than oppressive and mean. 

As for the Asian culture in particular, I have always admired many aspects of their culture in particular the no nonsense and practical work ethic. 

In our haste to not offend and to reverse obvious past prejudice and oppression, we have tried to stamp out obvious cultural differences between our groups and when you deny reality on so many fronts it is difficult to hear the valid complaints of social justice warriors.
 
Not at all.  The Chinese and Japanese have fought for centuries and viciously.  Similar to the Hispanic pecking order as once explained to me by my Cuban roommate long ago. 

The culture especially.  Besides the work ethic, the outward calmness, reverence towards family and the spirituality and understanding of the balances in nature, Yin and Yang as one example.
